When I was Thunder GM in WBBL01 we hosted Thai cricketers Suleeporn Laomi and Sornnarin Tippoch. We knew nothing about Thai cricket but were impressed by their passion for the game. Last night they made history – Thailand will play in next year’s T20 World Cup! pic.twitter.com/okjc3yNpvI

What a great day for Thailand. They have qualified for Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia for the first time in their history. What a day for cricket too. #T20WorldCup

The @ThailandCricket women’s team has just qualified for the @T20WorldCup. The craziest part? Almost everyone who has followed their story would have been more surprised if they DIDN’T qualify. An incredible story for world cricket in so many ways.

12 years ago a group of recently converted softball players came last in an Asian women’s cricket tournament. Today, they have made history; they have qualified for their country’s first #T20WorldCup. A credit to their local development programs. Simply amazing @ThailandCricket pic.twitter.com/XbmhA3xJJO
